Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher
The top rack is not getting clean and leaving soap scum inside and on top of glasses. I have verified that it is not clogged up and that it spins freely by hand. It's hard to tell, but I'm pretty sure that the spray arm is not spinning during any cycle. I think the water may not be flowing down from the top of the unit to enter into the spray arm, but I can't tell when I open the door. Please help.
Ditto! Tried running two cycles of Baking Soda and Vinegar. Small improvement. Would love an answer.
Hello--our Kenmore Elite has been showing exactly the same symptoms. Since it's under warranty I had a technician take a look at it, in fact he just finished putting it back together: problem was accumulated food and junk around the inlet filter to the pipe that leads to the upper racks. You can only get to this area by removing the lower spray arm, filter assembly, etc. until you are looking at the sump/chopper area. Any clogging should be self evident at that point.
This would be an easy repair for anyone with a few tools and the willingness to get into it. Seems to be working very well. We will be rinsing more thoroughly in the future...

Load 4 cups right side up in all four corners of top rack, move all wash arms to a known positon(pointing foward just want to check there rotaiton). start diswasher, when you hear it start washing give it 30 sec or so andpop it open try to focus on middle spray arm when opening, shlould be turning quite well. and glasses sould be starting to fill. at least thats how it SHOULD operate
